A minor issue with Totem and playing .avi files in Debian sid:
After todays updates I could no longer play .avi files (Green screen) for some reason. gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg-full of the Debian Multimedia repository no longer works.
Solution was to use gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg of the Debian Main Repository.
Debian-Multimedia’s gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg-full claims:
“This package contains all the encoders disabled in the official Debian package.
I assume the current glitch will be fixed soon.
